There’s nothing more breathtaking than Toronto in the winter—literally because it’s so cold! All joking aside though, Toronto is an extremely lively city no matter what time of year it is, but it is especially so in the winter when it’s covered under a beautiful blanket of fresh snow. There are plenty of fun family-friendly indoor and outdoor activities for you and your kids to enjoy together. From delicious food festivals to outdoor skating rinks, stunning city lights, and holiday events, there’s no shortage of awe-inspiring indulgences. If you’re planning on travelling to Toronto this winter season or staying at a furnished apartment in the heart of the city, here are a few business travel tips to help you and your family make the most of your trip to our beloved city!
Pack According to the Weather
Yes, it’s true what they say. Torontonians can experience all four seasons in a single day and therefore it’s extremely important that you pack your suitcase accordingly. When travelling to Toronto, check for major weather warnings in the city and make sure you have everything you need to make your trip as enjoyable as possible. Warm winter jackets, fuzzy sweaters, boots, gloves, scarves, and even snow pants for the kids are highly recommended.
Cook Your Own Meals
Truth be told, travelling with your family to a major city can get expensive and while you should check out some of the local eateries during your trip, it might be wiser and more fiscally responsible to purchase groceries and cook your own meals. This is also a great way to make your furnished corporate housing accommodation in Toronto feel more like a home away from home. After all, a good home cooked meal is one of the things people tend to miss the most when they’re in a new place. Also, if you’re travelling with young kids, cooking provides an excellent opportunity for spending quality time together.
Explore the Underground Shopping Malls
The underground shopping malls in the Entertainment District—famously known as The PATH—and the Atrium are arguably two of the city’s most underrated features. They offer a wide range of shops, food courts, and other attractions that you definitely don’t want to miss out on while you’re here. If you’re planning on moving to Toronto, then you’re going to want to get well acquainted with all of the city’s hidden treasures!
Outdoor Winter Activities
While most cities go into hibernation mode during the winter months, Toronto does just the opposite! Transforming a metropolitan city into a stunning winter wonderland is a Canadian specialty and that means there are plenty of things to do here once the cold weather hits. Visit one of Toronto’s many large outdoor skating rinks including Nathan Philips Square and take a selfie with the famous and colourful Toronto sign! Winterlicious, which takes place in January and boasts the participation of over 200 high-end restaurants, is also a fun and affordable way to feed your family while on-the-go!
